paper doll heaven,

Now that I have a granddaughter, I was wondering if paper dolls are still popular, and it turns out they are!

Here I have gathered lots of paper dolls of all kinds so any interest of any child will be represented. But if you still don’t see the ones you are looking for, click on any set of dolls to find more.

When I was little, our family moved all the time, sometimes 4 times in a year, due to my Father’s job in the Army. So we were not allowed to have many toys because they took up space when we moved. As a result we spent many a day and night doing art work, reading, and playing board games and cards, all things which required very little storage space.

So I had very few dolls, but I had paper dolls, lots of them. My Mother was artistic so she sometimes drew them for us, but we bought them too. I spent countless hours playing with them and figuring out cool outfits by cutting up the outfits given in the books, and rearranging them.

When interesting things happened in the news, frequently there would be paper dolls made to commemorate the people and events. That is how I integrated the news into my life. Otherwise it made no sense to my young mind. (Not that it makes any more sense now.)

I still think paper dolls are a fantastic activity for young children. They take up little room, and allow all sorts of creativity. And the famous people of today are still being made into paper dolls. What a great way to introduce current events.
